PUBG adds emotes and friends list, despite anti-cheat delay

A new update has been released for PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds, also known as PUBG, on PC, adding a couple n ew features and improving performance.

A new patch for the PC version of PUBG has brought with it friends list functionality and an emote system.

Not entered the battlegrounds yet? Following a large patch earlier this month with tweaks to gameplay, the game's tenth update aims to crush bugs affecting player experiences.

Apart from the smaller map, "PUBG" will also be introducing an emote system to the game, something which "Fortnite: Battle Royale" has also had since its release.

For now, 12 emotes are on offer with more to be "added in the future". To perform them in game, you hold down the emote menu key, which defaults to ~, and then you left click the emote you want.

You can check out the full update notes on the PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds forum. Do you think they chose the right approach? Independent of Steam friends lists, the PUBG friends list "is a one-way follower concept, not a mutual acceptance between players".

Another 37 achievements have also been added to the Steam Gaming list today, meaning more for hardcore players to try their luck at.

To make finding friends easier, the 30 most recent players you were teamed with will appear in a Recent menu.

The PUBG team also explained that alterations to limb and vehicle penetration have been delayed: "Unfortunately, there's been an adjustment in our plans, but we will be sure to give an update on this at a later time".

PUBG's March update is due to go live later this week but an exact time or date hasn't been confirmed.
